The Blessed Mother of Fatima told Sister Lucia that Archangel Michael will bring transparency to people’s actions on earth. In Acts of the Apostles, we see Ananias and his wife trying to lie to St. Peter. At the end of their testimony, St. Peter, and, we the readers, have a clear and transparent view of Ananias' true actions. When St. Peter questioned people, it did not matter whether they told the truth or not. It was the Holy Spirit who made people’s actions transparent for St. Peter.

NAB ACTS 5 Ananias and Sapphira.

A man named Ananias, however, with his wife Sapphira, sold a piece of property. He retained for himself, with his wife’s knowledge, some of the purchase price, took the remainder, and put it at the feet of the apostles. But Peter said, “Ananias, why has Satan filled your heart so that you lied to the holy Spirit and retained part of the price of the land? While it remained unsold, did it not remain yours? And when it was sold, was it not still under your control? Why did you contrive this deed? You have lied not to human beings, but to God.” When Ananias heard these words, he fell down and breathed his last, and great fear came upon all who heard of it. The young men came and wrapped him up, then carried him out and buried him.

After an interval of about three hours, his wife came in, unaware of what had happened. Peter said to her, “Tell me, did you sell the land for this amount?” She answered, “Yes, for that amount." Then Peter said to her, “Why did you agree to test the Spirit of the Lord? Listen, the footsteps of those who have buried your husband are at the door, and they will carry you out.” At once, she fell down at his feet and breathed her last. When the young men entered they found her dead, so they carried her out and buried her beside her husband. And great fear came upon the whole church and upon all who heard of these things.

I think we should pray to Jesus and ask Him to send the Holy Spirit to us to help us find truth on earth and once again make people’s actions transparent to the Church and to the world, as Jesus did for St. Peter and His early Church.

In Church and civil judgment decisions, currently, we have to carefully examine every small bit of evidence and witness testimony, in order to make judgments. I have an idea, why don’t we just ask the defendant to tell us what he did, saw and heard at the crime scene? Only now let us pray to Jesus to send the Holy Spirit to show us whether or not the defendant is telling the truth.

Satan is man’s evil pride on earth. When you give Satan no where to hide, it becomes hard for Satan to even commit his atrocities, crimes and injustices upon the innocent of the world. Many times scriptures tell us that Jesus will bring Justice to earth under Messianic Reign. Justice would be a great deal easier for world judges to enforce if the Holy Spirit was guiding them to know the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. Let us pray to Jesus that He send the Holy Spirit to guide the world to transparency of people’s actions, as Jesus did for St. Peter in the early Church.

Pope Francis is presently battling evil men in the Catholic Curia. He has invoked St. Michael to help him with his battle with the devil. Defend Us in Battle: Benedict XVI and Pope Francis Consecrate the Vatican to Michael the Archangel Pope Francis should call upon all Catholics and Christians to fast and pray hard to request that Jesus send the Holy Spirit to show Pope Francis just who in the Catholic Curia is honest and forthcoming with the truth. If I were Pope Francis I would park a refrigerated semi trailer in St. Peter's Square. Then I would count the number of Catholic Curia men and have that many body bags sitting next to the trailer. Put name tags on the body bags of all the Catholic Curia Cardinals. Let the Curia know, just exactly what you are asking the Holy Spirit to do, if they lie or are not forthcoming with the truth.

If the Catholic Church is going to Rule the world with Jesus, the last thing Jesus is going to want is to have evil men in the Catholic Curia. If the Church's eye's (Church leaders) are evil, gouge them out and hurl them into hell.
